Fishing Reports

Plan your next fishing charter aboard the MV Manutere out of Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, NZ.

Back in business!!!

Back in business after a combined weather and maintenance break.  And some great weather to kick off with.

We headed out to the Astrolabe and had an excellent start with a lot of snapper coming up.   Quite a few undersize, but plenty of good ones amongst them.

We swung off the mark quite a bit but then started getting tarakihi predominately, with a few undersize kingies in the mix.

We reanchored  a couple of times when they slowed down, continuing to do well  as we got back onto them. A great day in all respects.

Saturday was another good one. The weather was cloudy initially, but beautiful by the afternoon. A little bit slower fishing initially, as the current had picked up in the interim, but that eased after the tide change, the fish started feeding harder and we ended up with a similar result  to the Thursday.

So hopefully the bush telegraph is working and we start getting a few more phonecalls

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
